Explore Cuauhtemoc Mexico, Manned and more!

Cuauhtémoc was built in Bilbao, Spain in 1981 and originally called Celaya. She was later acquired by the Mexican Navy as a training vessel for officers, cadets, petty officers and sailors. Cuauhtemoc sailed the world for thirteen years and in 1995 underwent a major refit of the ship and rigging.

Yes, sailing ships are still truly masters of the seas. Maybe not as powerful and fast as their steel, engine-driven younger sisters, but nevertheless...

This reminds me of a song! "Upon the Good Ship Venus/By Christ you should have seen us/The figurehead was a whore in bed/Sucking a dead man's --" oh, wait. This isn't the Venus, it's the ARM Cuauhtemoc. My mistake, sorry.

The Mexican navy’s Cuauhtemoc makes a dramatic entrance to Kotka during the 2007 Tall Ships Races.
